[cheers and applause] now for eight year, we had a president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so we could reduce our deficit and invest in our future. at the time, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said this would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that his judgment was just as bad back then as it is today. by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and we had the bigg

is, how we take this to the next question? obama has a plan to do that with technology, research and development. host: we are speaking tim ryan, from the youngstown area of ohio. mike from houston, texas on our line for republicans. caller: good morning. i grew up in ohio. i have family there for 50 years. my concern here, congressman, class of 1983. my concern here congressman is that, i look at the democrats and i see a party that desires to command and control the economy. i see where, in houston, i've been here 20 years now new york houston we had an oil bust in 1985. the government didn't bail out houston but houston is home to 150,000 californians from the past 10 years alone. texas was not bailed out but now houston is host city to the world's largest medical center. it is growing faster than any large city in the united states. and no federal money. it is not a command and control economy. it has more free market and no state income tax and look at california as a case study they've lost 350,000 people to texas alone in the last 10 years. texas is growing, california is
. 2012] >> tomorrow morning, we will talk about how polls are conducted and analyze. new technology challenges the industry. scott is our guest followed by a spotlight on colorado beginning with an overview of the state with curtis hubbard the denver post. and we will see how the republicans are campaigning with strategist sean tonner. and in analysis of president obama's strategy to elected democrats with rick palacio. "washington journal" is live at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> we have a simple proposition. you can embrace the kind of approaches he has embraced. -- she has embraced. it has no new revenue, even for the wealthiest americans. it would require cuts in social security and medicare. or we can embrace a balanced approach. that is what i support. we can go back to the kind of rates we had under the clinton administration when people were doing well and the economy was growing. we're going to have to make tough choices. >> your bottle? >> it is amazing to me you can stand here having voted for chilean dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest increase in amer
people so they can get decent jobs and start growing again. to invest in science and technology and research. that's a better economic plan than one more round of tax cuts spending by a 22% cut on on education, science, and technology. it is bad for youngstown state, and obama's plan is better for the future of america. obama's education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100,00 0 new science, technology, and math teachers. committed to cutting the rate of inflation of college costs in half and to the student loan reform program, the single most important thing nobdody knows about. this alone justifies his reelection if you believe in the future. the old student loan system worked like -- the federal government paid the banks to make loands and guaranteed 93% of the loans. the new system -- under that old system, it meant we dropeped to 16th in the world in college degrees. a perscription for disaster. almost every job is created by someone with a degree. we can't afford to be 16th in the world. so what did the president and congress do? what did
could do and bringing new technologies to north dakota. when i served on the commission and attorney general, i went to minnesota and hard-fought for the coal industry. i heard a lignite leader award. i am as committed to north dakota's energy industry as anyone can become a and i did not know there could be a better advocate and someone who would stand and say have been there, i have this experience, i can get the job done, and i a understand what those challenges are. that is what i am hoping to do when i go to washington, d.c., represent this growing industry and include in it biofuels and wind which the republican party has been very hostile to production tax credits. using every form of energy to make it work in this country. >> obviously, there is a problem. keystone is not built. it is not built because the senate majority leader has not brought it up for a vote. our president has been a post it as well. our coal industry, one of the things that has stunned me is the epa came out with new regulations on coal plants, and it was so stringent you could not build a new coal plant
are not guaranteed, just the securities are. and the beauty of both proposals is that the technology and infrastructure and systems and human capital of the g.s.e.'s be wasted but compete with them. so i believe there's been some consensus around a proposal that is feasible and would work. one was issued by somebody who had an ax to ground, the mortgage bankers association, but milstein, coming from the treasury department, presumably his view is what is best for the economy but it is a very similar kinds of proposal in my estimation. and i wish that we could move ahead with something like this. it would be a tremendous benefit, i think, for the taxpayers to get some usefulness out of this investment that they have made in the g.s.e.'s and keeping them together and functioning to use the skeleton and infrastructure in a way that allows the taxpayer to get a benefit, to get some-monthizati some-monthization -- some moneyization of the investment. so, where should we go? in summary, i think the most important thing is to go somewhere assign. it is incredible to have this uncertainty an
